Hot Off the Press - Catching Fire Competition Winners

Monday 25 November 2013

For two weeks teen fans of the book Catching Fire have been furiously filling out entry forms at the  library in the hope of winning the grand prize of movie passes, a poster and the trilogy of books.

The waiting is over and congratulations go out to the lucky winners, Will Taylor from Motueka and Rachel Houston from Richmond.

Congratulations also go to second place winners, Oliver Hayden and Katie Malthus.

Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games series, has blazed straight to the top of the movie charts, setting a US and Canadian record for November ticket sales and hauling in a huge US$307.7 million (NZ $375 million) around the world.

The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as the heroine Katniss Everdeen, a skilled archer who becomes a beacon of hope for the oppressed residents of the fictional nation of Panem.
